Ashley, Denise, Jen, Karen and I had a wonderful time. We started our adventure with a visit to The Enriched Stitch. You should go visit this needlepoint store. It is filled with wonderful threads and canvases. They offer great classes both for beginners and more advanced stitchers and they also bring in nationally known teachers like, Julia Snyder. I will definitely go back for a visit.
Not a lot of stitching was done since we had to much fun at our little cocktail party.
Needless to say we probably would not have been able to find the holes in the canvas.
I got the most wonderful gifts. Denise and Karen gave me a gift certificate to have a family portrait done along with a gift certificate to have my hair and make up done for the picture. I decided that the portrait will be of Jen, Jake and myself. Ashley gave me a very generous gift certificate to Talbots to get an outfit for the portrait. These gifts mean so much to me. The portrait will be a reminder of the special friends I have and the wonderful trip we had.
I also want to thank everyone who played a very important part in helping me fulfill my dream for the party favors. You know who you are and you know that I cannot thank you enough.
One last picture from our trip.
This was my dessert last night.
